The aim of the conference is to bring together business leaders, insurance professionals, policy analysts, social service professionals, educators, key stakeholders to share the science behind adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). The conference attendees will gain an understanding of how childhood trauma could translate into workplace absenteeism, the rising cost of health care and mental health services. Our goal is to strengthen cross-sector collaboration and explore ways we can work together to promote greater awareness of the potential impact of ACEs on business productivity.
